A workflow for digital geological mapping, from fieldwork to multidimensional digital map, has been designed and tested in a sector of the Northern Apennines (Furlo Anticline). Using digital tools, a field mapping campaign was conducted after the organization of conceptual schemas for data capture, storage, and management. Once the data and schemas had been tested to enable a map to be drawn using GIS tools, they were almost ready to be imported into modeling tools for maps, sections, and 3D models. Moreover, we believe that web visualization and distribution using Google Earth is a further step in the direction of knowledge transfer to a greater number of people.
